On 26 November 2016, Inspire Cameroon will host a workshop, at Hilton Leicester Hotel UK, to allow participants to engage in a fact-based discussion with UK-based experts on “Tourism amidst Terrorism in Cameroon”.
VENUE: Hilton Leicester Hotel, 21 Junction Approach, Leicester LE19 1WQ
TIME: 15.00 – 18.30 hrs, prompt
Cameroon is historically described as “Africa in miniature” and this largely stems from the fact that it exhibits all major climates and vegetation of the African continent. Tourism has been on the increase, especially following the national football team’s impressive performance at the football World Cup finals in Italy in 1990. In recent years, however, heavily reported is the Boko Haram terrorist insurgency from across Cameroon’s border with Nigeria in the far north west of the country. Some observers suggest that there has since been a decline in tourist visits to Cameroon.
The workshop is therefore designed to inform on the latest state of affairs with respect to the Boko Haram insurgency in Cameroon, the government’s counterterrorism measures, general security situation and the surprisingly burgeoning Cameroon tourism industry.
